You could make a script to use these files but a cut-and-paste makes more sense to me unless you really want these usually filtered and removed roms.

My idea is to read those ini files at layout launch or romlist load, then create properties in the game list for them. Thanks to the internal game list in Arcadeflow I can add properties that are not currently in the romlist... In this way when you look at the details of a game you can see if it has a rating, and if it's part of a series.
With the "more of the same..." search function you'll be able to filter your games to show the ones in the same series as the current game, and you'll be able to sort by serie and by rating. Of course it will apply only to the games you currently have.

I just have to find a smart way to parse this huge files, or maybe output a simplified version to be used in the layout (like it does in history.dat)

I have never used the bestgames.ini or series.ini. I just looked at them and think you could do a simple cut-and-paste from these to manually create tag files in AM.

I know everyone has different preferences but the series.ini seems to be every version of a rom which most people wouldn't want to see. The bestgames.ini seems to rate every game so I don't think most would want all these games either since it includes games that they say are very bad.

the second options seems pretty easy but i didnt work i add the game to the system list and master list
(the game appeared in the system list) but in the "all favourite" game list didnt appear
i also tagged the game as favourite but doens't show up.

To use the first option you can add a global filter (this IMO is the best option if you plan to add roms all the time)
Code: [Select]
        global_filter
                rule                 FileIsAvailable equals 1

You do understand that the "master list" favorites/tagging is a different file from the "system list" favorites/tagging file. Please read the entire "master list" thread to better understand how it works (by people asking questions) and how you can hide of all your system lists but still show per systems lists using only the master list and filters (which eliminates the multiple favorites/tagging list issue).

Again, there are many ways to accomplish this.

Some people will always start with complete romlists so there aren't games ever added/changed. Then they create a global filters to only display games they actually have roms for.

Some people would manually edit the two romlist.txt to add the game entry to the system list and the master list.

Some people import romlists from other systems like HyperSpin.

Some people create romlists from the command line using filter switches when they are built.

Attract-Mode is very versatile and you may do similar things in different ways. Everyone has different preferences. My advice is plan/decide how you want your system to work and then determine the best way for you to get there. I spent a lot of time to get my system where I wanted it and barely ever make any changes to it.
